Number 13 is my favorite. Food that other people make from a food truck in New York.


As a part-time teacher and kid economics major (wink) I feel as if I have a black belt in boredom busters (inexpensive ones).

I like to enrich my family with hobbies that are also life skills.

I really believe hobbies are essential to happiness too.

Whether I’m by myself, with friends, or with my family, I like to come up with easy, affordable, and fun things to make or do that happen to evolve around food.

If you like to make something special, try something new, or  fight of the dreaded “b” word (boredom) I came up with a list so you can be well equipped.
